I was considering camping at foster falls and doing some climbing in the Chattanooga area next weekend, and there is the following notice:

FIERY GIZZARD TRAIL CLOSURE UPDATE 06/15/18

The Fiery Gizzard Trail is closed from Sycamore Falls to Raven’s Point due to a pipeline safety maintenance project. Both the Dog Hole Trail and Lower Fiery Gizzard Trail are closed. This is a utility company project and they estimate the work to continue through July. We anticipate reopening the trail on Wednesday, August 1. We apologize for the inconvenience.

I assume this affects the climbing areas? Any suggestions for camping that has reasonable access to climbing?

This closure doesn't affect the climbing at all. The part that is closed is WAY up the trail from Foster Falls. It shouldn't affect Father Adamz either. Not sure what that's all about.

Here's a link to a trail map which should make it clear where the closure is.

Are there shaded areas at foster? I thought it was south facing.
